History of the Macaron to Bonpastry February 19 2012, 0 Comments
The history of the macaron has been one of controversy and excitement. Rumored to have been developed by an Italian pastry chef of the famed Renaissance noblewoman Catherine De Medici, the macaron was supposedly introduced to France at her royal wedding to King Henry II of France in 1533. From this dynastic union, the French macaron was born, and its taste fitting of royalty has been developed over the years. The pastry has spread worldwide, with its international appeal growing into the 21st century. From its mysterious beginnings, the macaron has been transformed and perfected over time to become the sweet confectionary of BonPastry that it is today.
For Christiane Stephano herself, owner and head baker at BonPastry, her personal journey mirrors that of the macaron itself. Born and raised in Paris and Lebanon, Christiane began baking at a young age. As a young woman, Christiane moved to Paris, France, and learned the art of baking and preparing tantalizing French pastries. It was there that her love of the macaron began, and she soon traveled extensively through Europe, absorbing the culture and developing her culinary talents. Christiane was inspired further by her experience exploring the dessert world of Cannes in the French Riviera, and decided to bring her knowledge of French desserts to America.
The Macaron has quickly become BonPastry’s most famous and popular item. These “bites of heaven”, as Christiane calls them, are delicious and light cookies made with almond meal and filled with mocha Kahlua or chocolate ganache. Baked with passion and love, the final and most important ingredients, the macarons provide a true taste of France that would make even Catherine De Medici proud.

By Byron Winick from BonPastry.com
The holiday season is upon us, and your family is all over the country! The stress of choosing the right presents for everyone can be overwhelming, but sometimes the simplest presents go a long way. To keep the holiday cheer going, send some holiday sweets to your loved ones. This shows them you care, and provides them delicious snacks for the holidays!
Here are five tips to sending great food gift items to family and friends in the spirit of the season.
1) Order your gifts 7 days in advance to ensure timely delivery during the holiday season.
The holiday season is a crazy time for packages. Ensure your items arrive on time by tracking your package and leaving plenty of time for delivery to reduce risk of a holiday crisis.
2) Send items that will last at least 72 hours without proper refrigeration.
Too often people choose items that they think their friends or family will like, without thinking about whether or not they will go bad before they are delivered. Be sure to choose food with a long shelf life. .
3) Use a reputable online bakery such as www.bonpastry.com.
Ordering gifts online is a simple solution to the stress of holiday shopping. Choose items, personalize greetings, and ship to loved ones, all with the click of a mouse!
4) Ask the merchant if they will send a holiday gift card for an additional cost.
Adding a card to a holiday gift adds a personal touch that family and friends will enjoy.
5) And last always make sure to call your recipient and with them a Happy Holidays!
Sending a gift is important, but so is talking to your friends and family! Give them a personalized call to show them how much you care. It is the holiday season after all!
Use these tips, and your family and friends will be delighted by your wonderful gifts! After all, it is the thought that counts.
